Awesome. I found it very well designed and I enjoyed the oversight the program gives teachers over their classes.

Pixton for Schools gave my students a creative way to utilize their research and a more enjoyable way to document information.
– Ms. Sasscer, Teacher
We just completed a Cross-Curricular event about the Olympics. My students represented the country of France, and were able to create fantastic comics to show off the basic French they had learned. It is very user-friendly, and they loved being able to see and comment on each other's work!
– Ms. Butler, Teacher
Pixton for Schools is wonderful! We accomplished quite a stunning looking project. The kids had so much fun using the product and they saw the stories that they covered in a whole new light.
– Ms. Dempsey, 12th Grade Languages
Pixton is far superior to any other comic creation site on the web since the characters can easily be customized... Instead of the “usual” assignments given to students, Pixton offers another choice that allows students to be much more creative while using critical thinking skills.
– Keri Green
I found this program an excellent tool in checking the students' writing ability concerning proper grammar, punctuation, and the use of different literary techniques.
– Ms. Roberts, 8th Grade Teacher
Students have complete control over what they create, which they enjoy. The fact that things can be saved and worked on at a later date is valuable as well.
– Mr. Pinta, 7th Grade
My students that don't normally want to write, were writing dialogue and loving it. After they completed their assignment on bullying prevention, they created other comics on different topics on their own. Comics are another form of writing, with a twist that students enjoy.
– Ms. Trella, 7th Grade
Pixton for Schools was an excellent resource for my students to use to incorporate technology in science.
– Ms. Moon, 4th Grade Science Teacher
Pixton for Schools provided my students the opportunity to apply the concepts and theories learned in sociology because they had to create a comic that illustrated it in a "real-world" scenario.
– Mr. Weedon, 12th Grade Sociology
Very interesting and useful tool. Our students were really motivated and looking forward to having their Arts lesson.
– Ms. Palomar, Year 7 English Teacher
It was the perfect way for all of my 9th Grade English kids to get engaged, focused and thinking in a linear fashion both creatively and analytically.

Awesome site with limitless possibilities! You can have kids do comics to demonstrate understanding in almost any subject... and the kids have fun while doing it! Plan to use it all the time next year.
– Ms. Reeves, 5th Grade
The students were able to use Pixton to create their own "graphic memoirs" after reading Stitches, by David Small. Pixton allowed them to explore the relationship between words and images in telling a story.
– Ms. Kelly, 9th Grade
Pixton for Schools allows for student creativity in a very easy to use forum. I am a huge supporter of the service and know the students enjoyed using the software.

The students loved it. Brilliant software, easy to use.

Pixton is very user-friendly, designed in a safe way for students. It's a fun and easy way to reinforce all Language Arts skills, especially for those who are not strong readers.

It's a great tool for having my students summarize lessons. I love it!

Pixton for Schools was great! Students had a creative way to demonstrate their knowledge and practice their technology skills. Your customer service is awesome!
– Ms. Anderson, 8th Grade Computers
My students loved it! Pixton was a fun way for students to summarize a book. I think this would be a great alternative to a test, and what could be better than using technology to do so? I am impressed with all students could do with their comic strip.
– Ms. Lange, 7th Grade
On-task time during class was incredibly high, and all the students enjoyed sharing their comics on the Smartboard with the rest of the class. It is amazing how these tech-native students quickly master this medium.
– Ms. Gatheridge, 9th Grade
Pixton for Schools was one of the best teaching tools I could have used in the classroom. It helped to motivate the students to learn about literature in a new way. We covered everything from plot to characterization and beyond using Pixton.
– Mr. Geren, 9th Grade English
All the alternative facial expressions and body movements, as well as speech bubbles, added to students' ability to get just the right mood. It was not only fun for the students, but there were so many options the students could use to make the comic fit the scene.
– Grace Mueller, teacher
Unique medium for presenting information in a fun and interactive way. Students were very interested in producing their own comic in order to share key curriculum goals.
– Mr. Martens, Grade 10 Teacher
The comic software was of great value. The students were able to develop and create various comics. The exposure allowed the students to incorporate art and ELA standards.
– Ms. Bolling, 6th Grade
It helped me provide a creative outlet for my students so that they could showcase their literary skills in an interesting format.

Pixton was awesome, my students loved it!
– Mr. Gale, Teacher
Absolutely brilliant software, great as a teaching and learning tool.

Pixton was relatively easy to use for my students. I teach a self-contained special education class, and my students really enjoyed showing off to their non-disabled peers. I also liked the submission feature which allowed to be to send feedback straight back to them.
– Ms. Alessi
Very easy to use and manipulate the characters. Students enjoyed the freedom of movement and expression in the characters.
– Mr. Daniels, 7th Grade Science Teacher
Pixton gave my students a creative option for retelling, reflecting on, and responding to the story we read. I could easily determine who really understood the text and who didn't by the product they produced.

We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.
